Clothing that you no longer wear is by no means worn out. More than half of the clothing given away in Western Europe are suitable for a second life.
Specialised sorting operations like the Joan Smaal Textielrecycling ensure that this clothing is marketed worldwide. Contemporary and high-quality clothing, as well as winter items, are a large sales market in Eastern Europe. More dated clothing goes to markets in Africa and Asia. Articles of clothing that can no longer be worn are either made into rags for industrial use or serve as raw materials, for example insulation materials in the automobile industry. Remaining clothing can also serve as a valuable fuel for the cement industry.
We give your old clothing a second life!
Worn doesn’t necessarily mean worn out
